An entertaining read,
This review is from: Blood, Sweat and Tea: Real Life Adventures in an Inner-city Ambulance (Paperback)Written by my wife:
This is not written as a novel, so if that's what you are after then stick to fiction. This is a collection of paragraphs under different headings, aka a blog. I have to say that I found it very entertaining and my husband was probably quite annoyed with me because I kept telling him little incidents that I was reading. Hence my hubby has no need to read this story as he could probably repeat it parrot fashion from my constant interruptions to him to tell him another nouget from the blog. Personally I found it very true to life, and is how I imagine life would be for such frontline staff, however if I did the job I don't know that I could keep me temper from the 80% of time-waster calls they get. For example calling an ambulance out because 'I have had a cough for a week which starting to get worse'. While this is true, stories like this really annoy me because it is such a waste of precious resources, yet this is the harsh reality of offering a service that is free at point of service.
